Author Logistics Thread

This thread is for communication between and among AUTHORS about grunge stuff, scheduling, etc. Blog work. It is public to deter any kind of abuse. This is like the Wikipedia “talk” section. It replaces Gab chat and MOST (if not all) “private messages to Wolf”.

Non-author members of the site are welcome to observe, but please do not comment unless asked to provide information. I want to keep these proceedings very efficient.

Enjoy!

Pull up a chair and let’s talk. Yes, there are spies in the cafe, but we’re in PARIS, friends! Enjoy the show!

  1. Hey Wolfie, so sorry to bother you during this very busy election season. There is a bit of a problem with the recent post of Flep’s Twitter Travels

    https://wqth.wordpress.com/2020/11/02/fleps-twitter-travels-4/

    Apparently some people can’t actually see the tweets, just the URLs. Do you know a fix for this? Should I break the post down into smaller chunks?

    If you discover a way to show the tweets please let me know so that I can do the fixing & not waste your time further. Thanks for your help.

    God Bless! Thanks again for letting me part of the (occasional) Q-Tree authorship collective 🙂

      1. Exactly. If it’s just text, or text and a picture, you CAN pre-load those to WordPress using PARAGRAPH and IMAGE blocks. But video is very tricky, and I think a twitter link is likely the best.

    1. As far as I know there is nothing that you can do. I believe it’s a problem with the Twitter plugin which is literally DESIGNED BY TWITTER to “accidentally” screw up tweets RIGHT NOW.

      The only fix IMO which guarantees that people can see stuff is to DISSECT TWEETS and post the pieces. This will work for tweets with PICTURES but not with VIDEOS.

      Thus, instead of a URL, you post THE ACTUAL TEXT using a text block and the URL of THE PICTURE using an image block.

      If there is a video, you’re screwed, unless you know how to download videos, re-host them, and use THAT URL (e.g., on BitChute), or find the video elsewhere and post THAT URL as an embed block.
      Howver, it’s easier and simpler to just include the Twitter URL with a dot after it for the video, so people have to see it on Twitter.

      It’s very nasty. Sorry I can’t give you a nice answer. Twitter is no longer our friend.
